One Birth at a Time.
I was diagnosed with postpartum depression when I had my oldest and was on antidepressants and anxiety medication for over 2 years. I did not enjoy the first six to eight months of my son's life because I was so depressed and was crying most of the time. When we found out that I was pregnant again I immediately went off all my medication. The withdrawal symptoms were so severe on top of first trimester nausea, it was extremely unbearable. At first I was a bit skeptical about placenta encapsulation but decided I should give it a try to avoid going through one of the toughest times of my life. I was still a little scared after hearing some horror stories about poor sterilization process and the side effects, which I immediately raised to Candice. She was so patient when walking me through their sterilization and production process, I was truly impressed.
A few days before my EDD, a cooler was delivered to my house. As soon as my placenta was out, all my husband had to do was pass to cooler to someone on her team who was waiting outside of the hospital for us. The following morning the pills were delivered straight to my room at the hospital.
I am 3 months postpartum now and I cannot tell you how big a difference my recovery has been between the two pregnancies. I had an elective c section for my second delivery because I ended up having to have an emergency c section with my first. I was up and walking by the second day and walking swiftly and easily by the forth day. A week after delivery I felt like I was back to my old self already and everyone was telling me how great I looked compared to the first time around. My mood is also 100 times better than the first time. I didn't really get baby blues or mood swings. Not only did the placenta pills help me with my speedy recovery, it also helped me truly enjoy parenting my newborn. For this, I am forever grateful.
